About the workshop

What do you dream of? What will you do after high school? What is your dream job? What would you like to win a medal for? In this workshop, you will think about your dreams for the future and create an image by combining personal words and photography.

The workshop starts with an interactive guided tour of 30 minutes, in which you learn about photographic terms like framework, point of view, light and composition. Afterwards, you get a crash course portrait photography in our education classroom. You will make portraits of each other in groups of 3. While your portrait is being printed, you will think about your dreams for the future with the help of a questionnaire. You will write your dreams down on the printed portrait. All the results will be presented on a big screen and jointly discussed.
